The 2015 Leaders’ Debate

For the frist time in British general election history, 7 party leaders take to the same stage to debate, discuss and generally jockey for position in the public eye.  Each one has a clear set of objectives – things they need to say and do and things they need to avoid.

What are the dangers for the Prime Minister?  What does the Leader of the Opposition desperately need to do?  How will the ‘unknown quantity’ be heard?

The potential pitfalls are everywhere as this clip show from previous debates.  Negative body language, inappropriate comments or even forgetting your lines are the biggest fears of the seven people who are under intense scrutiny from the all-seeing eyes of the cameras.
